4:29am
4:30am
we've just learned that president obama will be speaking monday night at the national defense university at 7:30 p.m. eastern. perhaps on libya. now fresh pickings from the political grapevine. even casual observer can see that muammar gaddafi looked different over the years. now we know why. brazilian surgeon says the libyan leader has had cosmetic surgery in 1995. the doctor says he was taken to a secret bunker in tripoli well after mild night for the four-hour procedure in which he removed fat from gaddafi's
4:31am
belly and injected it in to his wrinkled face. gaddafi also got hair plug, he says. he adds the libyan leader got hungry in the procedure so midway through he stopped to have a hamburger. as unrest continues in libya and throughout the middle east, china appears to be trying to nip any protests in the bud. the "new york times" noted reports have interrupted cell phone calls, e-mail and internet access. in some cases cell phones were cut off when word "protest" was uttered twice. one was about a dinner reservation where they quoted the line from hamlet "the lady does protest too much." then the phone went dead in china, even shakespeare can get you in trouble. senate majority leader harry reid is biting the hand that feeds him trying to drum up democratic donations. political report say fundraising e-mail on behalf of the campaign committee, dscc and mentioned the
4:32am

4:33am

4:34am
go global. announcing in spain, egypt. >> they are moving and adaptable regardless of the situation. >> they make the money mostly through taking hostages in north africa. one of the high profile cases was a hostage edwin dire murdered after lengthy negotiations for the release stalled. at the state department, the u.s. ambassador to libya characterized al-qaeda this way. >> it's clear that the hqim is a danger to the region. >> ambassador who was pulled back from the post in tripoli suggest that gaddafi may be overplaying the threat. >> it's clearly a card he thinks he can get benefit of. patently ridiculous. do we have concerns? certainly we do. >> this week, one of al-qaeda important religious scholars hiding in pakistan released a statement supporting the overthrow of gaddafi. the issue is whether that will make it easier for them to gate foothold in northwest
4:35am
africa. in washington, catherine herridge, fox news. the coalition minority government led by steven harper fell today and lost historic no confidence vote requiring new elections that will likely be held may 2. it will be the fourth election in seven years. reports suggest against conventional wisdom he may be hoping to win majority faring better relative to other western economies. new threats at the japan stricken nuclear plant. possible breach at the reactor there, which would mean radioactive contamination is more serious than thought. reporter dominic dinatali is in osaka, japan, with the latest. hello. >> we're haring from the japanese prime minister naoto kan yesterday, it's friday morning in japan now, and he says the situation at the
4:36am
fukushima plant is unpredictable and he was not optimistic what would happen there. admitting that the authorities do not have control of the situation and will not, for quite some time soon. they expanded the evacuation area around fukushima to 19 miles now. that takes in account that encompasss 10,000 more people in the area that want to get out, though it's voluntary evacuation from the area. we heard from forces in japan they evacuated 5,000 people to the past 24 hours. the citizens, the japanese citizens are struggling to get out. the majority have left already they can't drive away. some of them are leaving on foot. more details is that the radioactive water is coming from the compound. they think it is coming from container vessel. it will be harder to repair
4:37am
because the fukushima 60, the restoration crew struck to get inside. two workers received radiation burns yesterday. we saw them taken away and cover in a big blue tarp. so much radiation it could be fatal. >> dominic, thank you. u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon says he is up ports reassessment of the nuclear response to the incident and review of the international nuclear safety measures as the european union leaders called for stress testing of the plant to put 143 reactors through the toughest security checks possible. president obama plans to address the nation monday night. before that, the fox all-stars discuss the administration policy in libya
4:38am
4:39am
4:40am
4:41am
we received reports today that he has taken to arming what he calls volunteers to fight the opposition. i'm not sure whether they truly are volunteers or not. i don't know how many of these recruits he is going to get. but i find it interesting that he may now feel it necessary to seek civilian reinforcements. >> okay. talking about libya and what has happened overnight as the attacks from the coalition, u.s., british and french mainly seem to pick up. bring in the panel. steve hayes, senior writer for the "weekly standard." charles lane, for "washington post." and charles krauthammer, syndicated columnist. steve, overnight, we had more attacks, especially from the u.s. there seems to be mission creep here, because yesterday you had people saying that this could, the french were saying that the operations could continue for days or weeks, but not months. today, nato said the no fly
4:42am
operation said it could last three months and france cautioned that the conflict would not end soon. the end came or commit strategy seems to be illusive on this. >> nobody has any idea. people are just saying these things. usually in response to questions they get that are often direct and specific questions they are answering them but it's creating a cloud of confusion over what has happened. this is inevitably what happens when you don't have american leadership. the problem with what we are seeing now is the effort to be multilateral is as important to win militarily on the ground at this point. so you have, i don't mission creep but mission confusion. various part of the coalition that don't know what the parts are doing. other parts of the coalition that don't know what the other parts are saying. that is a big problem. >> you have lawmakers raising questions. boehner raised questions earlier when they came back from the trip. he raised more today after
4:43am
talking to the white house. senator rockefeller, noted democrat says that now that the military has prevented immediate disaster, i have concerns over what it means for the country in the coming week. we need to spark the job creation and innovation at home, not become entangled in another conflict abroad. we know the president will speak monday night on libya. just in time as far as the lawmakers are concerned. >> no coincidence and i wouldn't surprised if he's not doing it to answer concerns from his own party about where it is headed for them. not coincidently with election year coming up. jay rockefeller isn't even the first. brown spoke out from the senate on this before. it's starting to look to me like kosovo. if we remember in the late '90s when bill clinton with
4:44am
very thin and indeed no congressional approval went in there and sort of launched humanitarian bombing campaign to protect the enclave in the former yugoslavia. milsova capitulate and withdrew his troops from kosovo. i'm not sure that there is a scenario under which gaddafi is going to behave the same way here. that is probably where the problem comes in. >> he withdrew because he was afraid the u.s. would put ground troops in there. we ruled that out. >> yeah. >> charles, we're seeing uprisings throughout the region now. and that is one of the most remarkable things about this. especially in syria, the most repressive regime in the region. >> that is what is so surprising. is you have crowds courageous protesters in the southern area of syria. come out in the street. it is reported today in the
4:45am
tens of thousands. and the authorities are just shooting people in the street. when you talk about levels of repression, this is a very early use of the live weaponry against protesters. this is syria. you got to remember they have been in power for 40 years in 1982, the father had a protest uprising in a town called haman. killed 20,000 people in a week. this is who they are. that is why there has been so little protest. i'm shocked that it's happening given the price. protest in syria. i'm shocked by the weakness of the american response. we had a secretary of defense saying i was in syria. the syrians ought to take a lesson from how the egyptian army is doing. what we ought to do is denounce the regime. a regime that funneled thousands of terrorists in to iraq who killed americans in the iraq war.
4:46am
destabilizes the prowestern regime in lebanon. destabilizes jordan. egypt and supplies hezbollah with tens of thousands of rockets. enemy regime that could be in jeopardy. we ought to be stepping up our rate and we should have a strong statement from the president at least. at least denouncing them the way he denounced repression. which was less in egypt. >> steve, it's interesting. all of this evokes an old statement from kennedy. those making peaceful revolution make violent revolution inevitable. suddenly in one nation and after another, people are demanding changes. >> despite the problem i have with the timing of the intervention and despite the problem of the way they con puckett the intervention in libya where i think it may have done some good. if you look at what could have
4:47am
happened in the absence of u.s. and coalition intervention, you had gaddafi strifing people with fighter jets and charging and slaughtering his own people. that has slowed, having stopped entirely. had we not done that, other dictators in the region, like salah in yemen saying the way to win is wanton slaughter and do it as quickly and brutally as we possibly could have. the fact that wave seen some fighting, it's bloody but not a massacre is a result of the intervention. >> glenn: up.
4:48am
4:49am
4:50am
now every week viewers vote for viewer choice online
4:51am
in the friday lightning round poll. this week, drum roll, please. census report won with 40% of the vote. now back with the panel. the census report is our first question here. one of the things, chuck, that was interesting about this was the group that grew the most, 43%. are hispanics. what are the political implications of that and the gravity shifted south and west. >> in one way this will help in the presidential race. why? population of states, the total population of state that vote republican is increasing dramatically. increasing representation of the college. texas that has always gone republican in the last elections will gain four elec
4:52am
ral vote. the 22 states that john mccain carried gain seven electoral votes from 173 to 180. despite that hispanics generally vote democratic, the population result shifts the college map in favor of the g.o.p. >> glenn: anybody else want to comment on that? or next question? >> the next question. >> all right. nothing to add. let me ask you about brazil. >> my reticence. >> exactly. >> first on television. >> on the recent trip to brazil seemed more enthusiastic about brazilian drilling than american drilling. the bank is guaranteeing loans so they can buy equip fire department the u.s. they issued a permit at a time when they seemed rare for the american companies. >> we have perennial recurring problem in the country.
4:53am
every few years, you have spike in the price of oil. we have two answers in the country. republicans say drill, baby, drill. and democrats say drill in brazil. i like brazil. a nice place for drilling. but why not in the gulf? why not off the east coast? why not in anwar? why not off alaska? >> there is a lot of tax money to be made with state and local money. something that you hear from the lawmakers, democrats and republicans. not to mention it's our oil. you reduce the dependence on the foreign nations. >> but by exporting development, president is exporting the potential political problems. if there is a spill it happens in brazil and not immediate, not in front of us. the bank is the source of more corporate welfare in the government.
4:54am
if they want to shut down the government and save money, don't start with the bank. >> we talk like there wasn't the biggest oil spill in gulf of mexico last year. what do you expect him to do? he's done what any politician would have done. he slowed down drilling in 2002, george w. bush helped jeb get elected governor shut down drilling off the coast of florida. this is unfortunately, very emotional issue. not in my backyard. i cat say i think only a democrat would have done this. >> republicans headed to iowa this weekend. crowded field this year. what surprises do you see? >> michele bachmann potentially throwing her hat in the ring. she hasn't announced
4:55am
officially and says she will decide in june. she looks serious. i think she and palin con stitch when will be strong, especially in iowa. >> the surprise is haley barbour. he has sighs with fundraisers and has a strong relationship with governors. but he is better on the domestic policy issues than people think. they will be surprised on that. >> i'm surprised that the republican field is so morphis and lackluster at this stage of the election cycle. you thought stronger folks would emerge, like daniels or chris christie would have taken the plunge. but there are folks that can't pass the litmus test with the iowa caucus voters so they hang back. >> okay. that is it for the panel. stay tuned for a speech that
4:56am
was lost in translation. hi, anne.
4:57am
how are you doing? hi, evelyn. i know it's been a difficult time since your mom passed away. yeah. i miss her a lot, but i'm okay. wow. that was fast. this is the check i've been waiting for. mom had a guaranteed acceptance life insurance policy through the colonial penn program, and this will really help with the cost of her final expenses. they have been so helpful and supportive during this time. maybe i should give them a call. i really could use some more life insurance. is it affordable? it costs less t that's pretty affordable, huh? less than 35 cents a day? that's less than the cost of a postage stamp. so, you said it was guaranteed acceptance? yes. it's permanent coverage with guaranteed acceptance for people ages 50 to 85.
4:58am
there's no medical exam or health questions. you can't be turned down because of your health. it fit right into mom's budget and gave her added peace of mind. you should give them a call or look them up online at cpdirect.com. i definitely could use more coverage. i think i will give them a call. man: are you between the ages of 50 and 85? or know someone who is? do you think that quality insurance at an affordable rate is out of your reach? for less than 35 cents a day, you can get guaranteed acceptance life insurance through the colonial penn program. you cannot be turned down because of your health. there are no health questions or medical exam. your rate will never go up, and your benefit will never go down due to age-- guaranteed! these days, the average cost of a funeral is over $7300, and social security pays a death benefit of just $255. don't leave a burden for your loved ones. since 1994, over 6 million people have called about this quality insurance. there's no risk or obligation. call about the colonial penn program now.
4:59am
you'll be glad you did. finally tonight. libyan leader moammar gadhafi addressed his country but what he said was open to interpretation at least by some. [ laughter ]
